I called the local Green tractor dealer to order a manifold gasket for my newly acquired M. When the parts dept answered and I relayed my need to the lady who answered, there was a long pause, then she asked me for the tractor model number. I repeated "a JD M" to which she replied "not sure what that is. I said you're probably not old enough to know what a Model M is. I gave her the part number from jdpc.com website and she says, OK it will be here next Wednesday. Experiences like this sure do make me feel old!!!! :shock: :lol:

I called the local Ford dealer when I had a Ford truck and ask how much is a clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing. The person ask “is it straight drive or automatic?” I hung up.

I'm with Shane. Experiences like this make you just want to run away. If only the entire world could pay minimum wage for a fantastic clerk.
Just hand them a phone and they will help you with your google search.

When I worked parts for the local Deere dealer all the guys with older tractors would come to me. I not only knew what they were talking about I took the time to find the parts they needed without making them feel like they were on another planet. I couldn't say the same about the one younger guy that worked there.

If only they would care enough to WANT to help you. If it isn't convient for them then forget it. Makes me not come back!!

I went to the local IH/Case dealer today, to see if they could help with oil filter, seal rings etc. They didn't know a Cub, and was only dealing in mm stuff.
Althoug that was what I feared, I got so disappointed, that I forgot to ask whether they was selling red IH 2150 paint.

I always advice everyone that is going to work in anything related to the automotive industry to study and at least learn the basic stuff so things like this never happen
